About the College

Welcome to Stevenson College

Welcome to Stevenson College. Founded in 1966, Stevenson is one of the first colleges at UCSC. We are located on a hill overlooking the beautiful Monterey Bay, close to the University restaurants and shops, library, pool, track, and gym. Our theme, "Self and Society," emphasizes the goals of both self-understanding and active participation in one‘s community. Stevenson students major in a wide array of fields - humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, the arts, and engineering. Our students' wide range of backgrounds, perspectives and interests, our 2-quarter core course - "Self and Society" and our wide array of lectures and community events contribute to making Stevenson an especially stimulating environment.

We invite you to get to know the Stevenson faculty, many of whom have achieved worldwide distinction in their fields. In addition, the staff at Stevenson is especially dedicated to offering the best possible support for our students. Whether your question is about what courses you should take, how you can best get along with your roommate, or what are your best career options - we are here to assist you in making your time as a student at UCSC as productive and enjoyable as possible.
